Branch 128 Romsey

Waitrose Romsey opened on 26th August 1969. I was the Assistant Development Manager with responsibility for ensuring that everything was finished and working before opening day.

The weekend before opening Stanley Carter Director of Trading Food , who had a fanatical obsession with detail ,visited the branch and decreed that one of the fixtures needed to be moved 4″ sideways. Despite the fixture being fully stocked and the selling floor having a significant slope from back to front the fixture was duly moved.
